Not wanting to put down someone's school but if my Alma Mater shared its name with a Staph infection I would be sinking some three's- nothing but net.

Don't tell my grandson that. He thinks Coach K can walk on water.

Total class act on Coach K's part to head over to the Mercer locker room and congratulate them. I'm hoping a video shows up somewhere.....

Thanks bd - was mostly off-grid in the mountains of NC this weekend and am just catching up.

Is anyone playing better than Arizona and Michigan right now?

Not sure - I'm not really much of a hoops' fan. I'm focused on spring football like everyone else associated with Duke.

And I have land in Florida I'd like to interest you in ...

Ha!

Did you happen to see Va Tech signed Buzz Williams as their new hoops head coach? I'd call that a slam dunk.....

Yeah, it's a strange year for NCAA. I was shocked to see
Duke go down. Of course, here at UK we all hate Duke, but
I still have respect for coach K, esp. his "stay two years
before the NBA draft" rule.
Everybody's brackets are all shot to hell. Now today
Syracuse goes down. WTF???

University of KY fans have had a rough year. We expected
this team of freshmen to walk on water. Not so.
I gave up on us last month. Now, after beating Kansas State
we face undefeated Wichita on Sunday. With so many One seeds
eliminated, if we beat Wichita, then Louisville our deadly
rival - we may creep into the Final Four???
It's a year where anything can happen.

It's weird - no Hunter/Garcia songs about sports??
Not even baseball??

cheers,
Dr. Flashback :-)
